In 1872, the Yellowstone National Park became the very first national park in the world. The more than 300 geysers that can be found in the park was the result of a super volcanic eruption that occurred more than 600,000 years ago. The most famous of all the geysers in the park is the geyser nicknamed “Old Faithful.” In just one and a half hour, the Old Faithful spews more than 8,000 gallons of boiling water. Yellowstone National Park is also a wildlife haven. Grizzly bears, moose, elks, and sometimes bison are often seen roaming inside the park freely.
